    You must have a defective unit I'm hearing on the other forum that these things are real workhorses and can really tear it up

    Electric Eel makes adapter for 1.25" Electric Eel cable to 1.25" Ridgid cable. I'm sure they would custom make one for you if you wanted to go from 1.25" Electric Eel to 7/8" Ridgid if you wanted that. I have had them make me custom adapters before. Here is a picture of a 5/8" Electric Eel cable to 5/8" Ridgid cable I had made up for my Model N.

    Thanks Will, I'll look into that. When I was new to the K-sissy, I got it stuck once on a two inch galvanized vent....I thought it was a straight shot but it had a couple of 45s in it and I wasn't being careful.

    Ended up welding the ends from the 7/8th cable and a Spartan end cable, took the 300 on the roof and got it right out. The K-60 has NO power when your stuck.

    Ok I have a question I have a 1/2" drill with the d handle like the ones some of the guys are using but its a makita version and its 600 rpm. Is that too fast for the drill and eel set up? I also have one of those dewalt dwd460's would that be a better choice since it has that bind up control and is only 330 rpm?

    I've been running the Dewalt DW124 (300rpm) for almost a year now and just weeks ago bought a Milwaukee 1660-6 (450rpm).

    I would start with the slower rpm until you get a good feel for what you are doing.

    Is 600rpm too fast ? I don't think so and if I grow tired of my 450rpm Milwaukee I'll be looking for a faster one

    Kendall, let me know if you need an eel drill adapter. I have an extra. You'll need to supply the shaft, a 5"bolt works fine for this.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.
